TeX documentation online: texdoc.net

The TeX-sx chat system is a great place to get together for new ideas. A few days ago, regular contributors Stefan Kottwitz and Paulo Cereda decided to set up an online TeX documentation system. Within a few hours, texdoc.net was born! Using the new site, linking to documentation (from TeX Live) is easy

`http://texdoc.net/pkg/<package name>`
This will take you straight to the PDF for the package you want. Of course, you don’t have to know the name of the package you are interested in: the full power of `texdoc` and the category view from `texdoctk` is there behind the scenes.

Stefan has already added this to the mark up for The LaTeX Community, and I’m sure it will get lots of use on TeX-sx too.
